At that juncture the man cried for help and the neighbourhood came out, provoking the robbers to start firing, and a result one of them lost his life. However one of five other attackers who managed to escape by running into the bush is believed to have escaped with gunshot wound, as traces of blood was seen along their escape route.
Meanwhile the body of the unidentified slain attacker has been taken to mortuary at the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital.
